In addition to our partner schools that will accept transfer college credit, several organizations offer recognition for Saylor Academy courses as part of a special program. These programs show how Saylor Academy’s open online courses can effectively and affordably advance an organization’s mission and serve a variety of constituencies both small and large. Consider these as “use cases” for ways that your school, nonprofit organization, or business can work with Saylor Academy to improve college completion rates, create flexible degree programs, or manage staff/workforce development.
